Indeed we rest

By: Shelbi henny

Decisions was made

While my body lay stiff

Cut the waves

My body reflect symptoms

Of a baby that wouldn’t take

A mystery to figure

If it was me

Creating the insignificant


Between reality and

A shamed lie

Doing whatever it takes

Speaking softly to reach

The gates

Only heard when I become

A deranged and unfamiliar


Losing capabilities

While disrespectful infestations trembled

And lay comfortably

At the address labeled

as my home

Yet I couldn’t get pass


Camping on the sidewalk

Crumbs trickling

From stone and bobwire

Unions And alone

Tabloids exposing the fact

That I’ve been planning life

With such a stranger

That danced on marble floors
